Allow colors in signs and set default color to white.

This mod allows you yo use the Unity Enriched Text functionality, which works with the following tags:

Tag Effect
<b>b</b> Bold
<i>i</i> Italic
<size=50>s</size> Size
<color=#ff0000ff>c</color> Color


Try writing this lines in any sign:

<color=#ff0000><b>Hello</b> <i>World!</i></color>
<color=#ff0000>Colorful</color> <size=2.6>indeed!</size>

Color Library

This functionality allows you to use specific colors without having to remember their hexadecimal value. Inside the plugin folder there is now a file called "color_library.json". You will see something like:

    "red": "#a12d2d",
    "blue": "#292fcf"

This will turn "<color=red>" to "<color=#a12d2d>" when inputting a sign text value, effectively changing its color. You can edit the Json to have your own color palette!

When editing the Json:

  • Remember that the last element doesn't have a comma at the end
  • Don't use special characters, try to stick to alphanumerical values.
